Black ale with aromas and flavours of vanilla, dark chocolate, bourbon and roasted malt. The vanilla and cocoa marry nicely, without out-competing each other, to produce a surprisingly well balanced beer. This beer is mildly hoppy, but the cocoa introduces a touch of bitterness. Its colour may be intimidating, but it is a very smooth beer within reach of most beer drinkers. This highly appreciated dessert beer is brewed with organic fair-trade cocoa and first rate vanilla beans.

UPDATED: SEP 21, 2006 Draught (nitro, I asked). at the bar in heaven, I mean Dieu du Ciel. Very deep ruby, clear, with a large, lasting, creamy beige head. Rich, sweet-yet-bitter aroma of strong mocha coffee, some hazelnut, with sweet light roast malt, chocolate, yeast and milk solids. Solid creamy mocha flavour, lots of hop bitterness, nowhere near as sweet as I expected it to be, only a small vanilla bean tang to it, has a long rich balanced finish. Mouthfeel - Lord this is a nice beer, felt perfect on my palate, thick, sweet, lightly carbonated, just a hint of acidity, with a long finish. Terrific sweet stout. My scawled not says "hooo - baby! that’s f’in nice!"

Tap. Hazy, dark brown with fine fine creamy (finger thick) top. Aroma was very soft, velvety. Chocolate, cacao beans. Soft yet very rich juicy nose. Medium, full bodied. Plate dominated by soft textures, roasted grain and soft bitterness of raw cacao. Munich malts were used as well? Light yet very rich. Impression of chocolate dipped drink. Very good for chocolate lovers in cold fall nights.

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2010 Mondial de la Bière de Montréal; WOW WOW WOW, what a gooood beer. Its the first Dieu du Ciel beer that I taste, and this is a near perfect stout. The head is just like the Guiness beer, chocolate, vanilla, sweat coffee taste. Dark black appearance. I also smoke to the owner, and they are really sympatic.

Amazing! Dark brown with a tan head that just floats on the body. Aroma was spectacular with vanilla, milk chocolate, coffee and some brown sugar. Flavour starts with a kick of vanilla coffee and then moves to the choclate before creaming at the finish. Tastes like the best coffee, vanilla cream and chocolate mixed together. My favourite from Mondial 06.

Easily the best nitro beer I have ever had. On tap at the brewpub. The body was very dark brown almost black. The light khaki head was frothy. The aroma had vanilla with cinnamon and pears. There was also caramel and some shortbread. The taste was lots of caramel with smooth milkd chocolate. This is so smooth in every way. Very good.

Jean-François got us a bottle at the brewpub (thanks!), bottled in December 2005. Very nice beer. Aroma is chocolate, vanilla, flavor a combination of Vanilla, chocolate and coffee, reminded me a little of the Peche Mortel. Very nice beer, very smooth with a bitter coffee finish.

UPDATED: MAR 3, 2008 Bottle (12/2005) 6.5% ABV... Shared with Dutch70 and Jean-François at the brewpub... This beer rocks!... Black in the glass; opaque caramel color when held up to bright light. Large, creamy, khaki head. Good retention. The aroma delivers big notes of milk chocolate, medium notes of vanilla beans and coffee... subtle notes of brown sugar and toasted walnuts. Slightly sweet flavor with rich chocolate, vanilla and light caramel. Medium-bodied and velvety with mild carbonation. Finishes chocolatey, lightly burnt/bitter and dry. Thanks to Jean-François for the bottle. I see no reason why this wouldn’t be a hit when kegged, bottled and exported to the U.S. I look forward to the day when I can try it on nitro as intended. World class stout!

UPDATED: AUG 9, 2007 Rebu sur place en fut (20 oz). Brune noircie, bon collet beige avec une grosse dentelle. Arome de malte très chocolaté, juste assé sucré et très doux et cochon. Goût de malte rôti et très chocolaté, avec une petite douceur de vanille. Divine!
